Ahiohill Grotto blessing on Aug 14th

Work on the graveyard extension at Ahiohill is nearing completion. The extension provides new and extra space for burials in the cemetery in the grounds of the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The new Grotto to Our Lady is also finished – the statue is now installed.

The Grotto will be dedicated and the cemetery blessed at Mass to be celebrated there on the eve of the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.

The principal concelebrant at the Mass will be Bishop John Buckley on Sunday August 14th at 7pm.If the evening is fine, the Mass will be celebrated in the cemetery — if it’s wet, Mass will be in the church.

All welcome.

Built in 1871 …

“WITH our present issue we give an illustration of the new Catholic church, the erection of which has just been commenced by the Rev. Dr. Coveney, P.P., at Enniskean.”

So begins an article published in “The Irish Builder” in 1871 describing the building of our parish church. The full text is in the attached PDF file here. Our church is now 145 years old. Thanks be to God for all who built it for us.
